, I'd like to join the AI team sometime in the near future. My programming skillz have regressed to an infantile state, BUT I used to be good. I'm learning Python for a job I should get soon in Dallas, so i'd like it if we could use that. Not to mention its about A MILLION times easier than C++ to do the math calculations/functions for an AI. And as a bonus its inherently multiplatform.
The attempt to conjure a self-learning AI for FreeOrion would be a nice project for a CS or EE graduate student. (or at very least a subset of the AI, for example growing an AI to handle resource production or diplomacy).
I'm currently an EE Junior at UTD, perhaps i could make it a project of mine
